of young democrats. to hear this man talk was really astounding. i am quite critical of the obama administration in terms of things i have done. in terms of hagel's nomination, i am very impressed. his views on foreign-policy almost seemed to dip -- too far beyond this era. my only feel is that the political parties will bring this ideology down simply because a lot of people are not prepared for it. thank you and have a good day. guest: i think -- i would beg to differ about the too far beyond this era. i had the privilege of working for former secretary of state george schultz. in my estimation, senator hagel's views are consistent with secretary schultz, whom i think is one of the giants of our time. i think they have the same sort of outlook of trying to be pragmatic and take a look at things from multiple dimensions and informed judgments based on the conditions of the time. i think we have had many people of this particular persuasion. we have been fortunate in our country to have many leaders like senator hagel. i share your hope that we continue to have them going forward.

to produce good citizens, i join president obama today in asserting with urgency that our citizenry deserves a strong foreign policy to protect our interests in the world. a wise investment in foreign policy can yield for a nation the same return that education does for its students. no investment that we may that-- make that is as small as this investment put forward such a sizable benefit for ourselves and for our fellow citizens of the world. that's why i wanted to have this conversation with you today, which i hope is a conversation that extends well beyond the borders of charlottesville, will be on this university, to all americans. when i talk about a small investment in foreign policy in the united states, i mean it. not so long ago, someone told the american people and asked how big is our international affairs budget? most said 25% of our national budget. they thought it ought to be pared back to 10% of our national budget. let me tell you, i would take 10% in a heartbeat, folks. because 10% is exactly 10 times greater than what we do invest in our efforts to protect america around
, and they have at the most popular politician in the country behind their back. president obama said he is ready to work with them. notably he and former president bill clinton had become more eager to get ahead, more progressive, vs senate democrats. you've got to be ready to compromise a little bit with the other elements of congress in the coming months. you are going to have defections when it comes to gun control, immigration, and what we may have to do with a fiscal policy. host: you touch on that point, an unlikely ally for house democrats, the speaker of the house, john boehner. guest: that is something that many democrats have pointed out. he made -- he may need them to get some of these bills passed. as he did with the debt ceiling vote. as he did with the bill for hurricane sandy victims. as it came with the fiscal cliff agreement. i see that as a possibility with a gun control and immigration, because while republicans cannot be eager and willing to discuss the issues, pulling suggest that the house may have to pass something. i will meet democrats. host: -- they will need democrats.
morning on this tuesday, february 19, 2013. the obama administration is walking back and immigration proposal after senate republicans said would hurt bipartisan efforts in congress. a handful of republican lawmakers in the house have proposed cutting spending $30 billion. should there be armed guards in schools? republicans this is your number -- democrats -- and dependents -- educators -- send us a tweet @cspanwj. or send us an e-mail. we will begin this e-mail with the hill newspaper and the house and house republicans proposing $30 million a year to fund cops in schools' programs. mark meadows and six other house republicans have proposed legislation that it spent $30 million a year on federal grants to help put police officers in schools across the country. according to a recent poll, 53% of americans believe increasing police presence at schools would be very effective in preventing future tragedies. -- we are getting your take on this this morning. armed guards in the schools as part of an overall effort to tighten gun laws. a democratic caller in florida, curtis, go ahead. ca
